Akron Community Foundation is excited to announce the 2023 installment of On the Table! Since 2017, On the Table has brought together nearly 20,000 diverse residents from all walks of life and allowed individuals to come together to discuss topics important to the community. As we move into 2023, Akron Community Foundation invites you to participate in the On the Table Action Challenge. The On the Table Action Challenge strives to build upon previous years’ foundation and provide an immersive experience, empowering participants to go beyond one-time conversations. This challenge consists of seven tasks that will take place during the month of February, 2023.
Research indicates that to impact the institutions (criminal justice, education, employment, healthcare, and housing), we must focus our strategies on changing thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Therefore, we must provide pathways for individuals to increase awareness and willingness to develop new communication patterns and behaviors. We hope that by participating in the Action Challenge, our community will come together to understand and gain knowledge of what it means to see the world through the lens of another.
